Netflix Delays Felicity Huffman Film

Netflix Removes Felicity Huffman Film

Netflix has delayed the release of the Felicity Huffman-led comedy “Otherhood” after the actress agreed to plead guilty for her role in the college admissions bribery scandal.

Originally slated to open April 26th, the movie has now been pushed back to August 2nd. Patricia Arquette and Angela Bassett co-star in the film about a trio of suburban mothers who show up unannounced at the New York City homes of their sons.

Cindy Chupack helms from a screenplay she wrote with Mark Andrus, based on William Sutcliffe’s novel “Whatever Makes You Happy”. The U.S. Attorney’s Office announced on Monday that Huffman and a dozen other parents will plead guilty in the college admissions scandal.

Huffman also plays a prosecutor in Ava DuVernay’s Central Park Five miniseries “When They See Us” for Netflix. That project is still slated to premiere May 31st.
